Welcome to The Bible and the Sacraments, part of the dynamic, best-selling Journey Through Scripture video series. This beautifully filmed, eleven-lesson series explores the sacraments of the Catholic Church, illuminating these “‘masterworks of God’ in the new and everlasting covenant” (CCC 1116).
The Bible and the Sacraments is unlike any other study on the sacraments. Certainly it looks at the basic teaching of the Church as to their meaning and origin. But it goes further. It investigates the deeper mystery of the sacraments as illuminated by Sacred Scripture.
Examining the rich relationship between the Old and New Testaments, it reveals the sacraments as more than mere earthly rituals. They are incredible “‘powers that come forth’ from the Body of Christ” (CCC 1116).
The goal of The Bible and the Sacraments is to understand where the sacraments come from, what they mean, and why they are so important and foundational to our Catholic faith.
The Bible and the Sacraments is based on the work of world-renowned theologian Dr. Scott Hahn. Presented by popular speaker and author Matthew Leonard, the deep mysteries and truths of the sacraments come alive in a whole new way.
